Goldilocks and the Three Dinosaurs is a new take on the fairy-tale classic Goldilocks and the Three Bears, so funny and so original—it could only come from the brilliant mind of Mo Willems, the author/illustrator of Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus and the Elephant and Piggie series.

Once upon a time, there were three hungry Dinosaurs: Papa Dinosaur, Mama Dinosaur . . . and a Dinosaur who happened to be visiting from Norway.

One day—for no particular reason—they decided to tidy up their house, make the beds, and prepare pudding of varying temperatures. And then—for no particular reason—they decided to go . . . someplace else. They were definitely not setting a trap for some succulent, unsupervised little girl.

Definitely not!

This hilarious story is perfect for fans of the Stinky Cheese Man and Other Fairly Stupid Tales and The True Story of the Three Little Pigs.

    This was SUCH a good book! You know the story of Goldilocks. But this one is different! These dinosaurs, mama dinosaur, papa dinosaur, and some other dinosaur visiting from Norway, set up a trap for a girl to eat. So here comes Goldilocks falling into the trap! Except it doesn’t go the way the Dino’s want it to! I was cracking up while reading this, and so will you. I give it five stars.
